- Server Status
Server management is a bit of a mess. Blade with new hard drive was installed months ago, thought it was all done, turns out there's no network connection and nobody thought to tell the committee so we could get this sorted out.
- Upcoming Presentations
- O'Reilly Books
Motion to donate $20 to Methodist centre
Did anyone tell Methodist Centre? Receptionist mentioned we hadn't picked up our deposit, I told her we'd decided to make it a donation. This probably should have been in writing though.
- SoftwareFreedomDay and WLUG Business Directory?
Send out a letter to all Waikato IT businesses. If they support or use Linux or FLOSS, we'd like them to create a wiki page and link to it (I see we already have CategoryCompany, perhaps we could have a more detailed and categorised CommercialSupport? page or something? Specifically an easy place to find commercial support for FLOSS in the Waikato. And also invite them to make a booking for SFD. We should charge for tables to help cover other costs? How do Trade Shows normally work this?
